On Friday last Ciarán and Hannah Burke of the garden school (www.thegardenschool.ie) visited First and Second classes where they presented workshops on planting, seeds and germination. The classes learned how to make pots out of recycled newspapers,filling it with organic peat free compost and sowing a seed.
Ciarán introduced his friend Doo Doo the Scoodoo who told the children about how a seed grows. It really was lots of fun and helped to bring an important message to the children about caring for the planet.
We really appreciate Ciarán and Hannah taking the time to visit and we look forward to seeing more Scoodoos in our school grounds in the coming weeks!
